Reviewed on an iPhone
Wow, the iPING Putting app is a game-changer, literally. Ping are reknown for making great putters, so it is no surprise that they have made a great putting app. One of the most technically integrated apps around, the app uses the iPhone/iTouch's accelerometers and gyroscopes to measures various aspects of your putting stroke to evaulate it and help you improve. Thanks to the custom-made, yet overpriced, PING Cradle, you can easily attach your iPhone or iTouch to any putter and begin improving your putting. The app is easy to navigate around and the concise 4-option menu makes it incredibly fun, easy and fast to use. Switch on the app, choose whether you want to Practice or Measure and within seconds you are off and running.
Once you have measured your stroke, you are given a Putting Handicap which you can try to improve, but be warned it does become addictive. Add multiple user profiles, take on your friends, upload your results to Facebook and even take on Lee Westwood or Angel Cabrera as all of their stats are pre-loaded and available for you to compare against.
Apart from the price of the Cradle, we were blown away by the iPING app, however we think it is ideally suited to low handicappers and serious golfers.
